I realize the issue of abortion is a sensitive one. However, the fact that our country wants to nominate a man who takes the life of the unborn, leaves me confused. Why nominate an individual who represents two conflicting sides and causes such divisive emotions? Until this issue is settled, I believe we can easily find another doctor worthy of such a prestigious nomination and truly reflects "do no harm".
Below is a letter from ProWomanProLife detailing how you can help by calling the office of the Governor General. Please take a moment to call...it will only take a moment to leave a voice message, and it might make a difference!
Right now, there is a campaign to nominate Henry Morgentaler for the Order of Canada.
Please take action - and help prevent our country from honouring the killing of unborn children and the harming of women and families.
All it takes is a free phone call!
Rest of Canada: 1-800-465-6890
From Ottawa: 613-993-8200
You will get a receptionist.
Ask to speak to Madeleine Proulx (pronounced "Prew"), who deals with the Order of Canada.
You will probably get voicemail.
State your name and that you want to register your objection to Henry Morgentaler receiving the Order of Canada.
State the reason why (ie. Morgentaler has not improved the status of women as he proclaims; abortion on demand has decayed our respect for human dignity; his values do not represent a large number of Canadians, etc.)
Please try to be neutral in your tone.
